While the snow shuts down everything on campus, Maryland basketball’s season continues Monday when it hosts Wisconsin.
The Terps are coming off a 78-75 win over No. 22 Indiana, trailing by 14 points in the first half before going on a 16-0 run early in the second half to take the lead. Maryland controlled the game after that, winning its fifth straight to improve to 14-3 overall and 5-1 in Big Ten play. Bruno Fernando led the Terps with a career-high 25 points on 11-of-12 shooting and also added 13 rebounds for his ninth double-double of the season. Anthony Cowan Jr. continued his recent run of strong play, finishing with 24 points, five rebounds and seven assists.
It was Maryland’s second straight win over a ranked opponent, which the Terps hadn’t done since 2016. Maryland was ranked in the top 25 the last time that happened, and the Terps won consecutive games against ranked teams while unranked since 2013.
The Badgers reached as high as No. 12 in the AP Poll earlier this season, but dropped out last week after losing back-to-back games against Western Kentucky and Minnesota. After winning at Penn State last Sunday, Wisconsin lost to Purdue at home on Friday and have now lost three of its last four games. The Badgers are led by fifth-year senior Ethan Happ, who averages a team-high 20 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. You can read Lamar’s preview here.
